Mayor Nicholson on why it was canceled. “Due to a scheduling conflict with the main contractor, who still has site control of the location, the contractor asked that the public meeting/tour be postponed due to wanting to make sure they were 1) available to attend and 2) were able to ensure full cooperation with the required OSHA safety protocols of closed toe shoes and hardhats since it is still an active construction zone.”

New Gardner Elementary School On Track – However, June 27, 2022 Public Tour Canceled

A special meeting of the Gardner School Committee scheduled for 4pm on June 27, 2022 at which members of the public would have been able to tour the new Gardner Elementary School has been canceled. No word if it will be rescheduled for a later date.

The notice of meeting canceled was posted on the School Committee website on Friday around noon. The media was not notified of this change and we have inquired why.

Previously it was announced that only wearing a Hard hat and signing a waiver would get you in. The Gardner School Committee meeting was to be convened for that purpose and the Gardner City Council had planned to attend. In the meantime, our photos show the substantial progress being made on the new facility which is scheduled to be “substantially completed” by July 15th.

Gardner MA new school just a few short weeks away from substantial completion.

Construction continues at a brisk pace at the site of the new Gardner Elementary School.
